Hannah was a happy 13-year-old until she became an ‘emo’ - part of a sinister teenage craze that romanticises death. Three months later she hanged herself.

Is emo just a genre of music?

Is it a cult?

Is it a philosophy?

Is it a product of too much drugs?

What?

NOW UPDATING!!!

Emo is just a label(short for emotional) like nerd or jock etc, it doesn't really mean a whole lot about who that person is, just that they tend to dress in dark colours and listen to similar music. The myth that all emos cut themselves is really not true…a lot of teenagers do, but from all different labels.

Actually, alot of them do because they think they're supposed to. They crave to belong in a group and they follow the stereotypes to fit in. Oh cliques, you never cease to amuse me.

Why is there suddenly a load of stuff that's been posted on Something Awful?

Oh well, I'm going to be an individual with my other emo friends.
Hey buddy, you should be a Russian Cosmonaut, and here's why.

I'm in high school so I know a lot of emos…I know ones that do cut themselves but they have actually suffered from depression for a long time. I think the depression comes before becoming emo, and then maybe it just kind of fits to become one. I think the emos that do that stuff simply to fit in are the exceptions, not the rule.

Most teenagers get depressed. It's just what happens… Hormones etc.

Emos made a fashion statement out of it.

I have depression but I never decided to listen to singers with squeaky voices whining or make my own clothes out of arts and crafts materials.

I'm “old”. This term never existed when I was in high school and I never knew what the hell an “Emo” was until recently.
